Trump’s Latest Saudi Statement is Hair-Raising

This latest statement from the President is alarming, to say the least.

Weeks ago, Saudi Arabia committed one of the most heinous acts of anti-journalistic revenge of all time with the horrific killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, who had spent much of his career attempting to keep the Saudi Royal Family in check, walked into the Saudi consulate in Turkey weeks ago, never to be seen again.  The details of his demise were abhorrent, with rumors of his body being dismembered alive, and then possibly carried directly through the airpot in Istanbul to be disposed of elsewhere.

A vast majority of the world has accepted that this brazen act was carried out at the behest of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman due to a glut of evidence.

Now, even after being briefed with all of the gory details of Khashoggi’s death, President Trump has apparently sided with Saudi Arabia in the matter, raising more than a few eyebrows.

The president said he understands many lawmakers would like to see a tougher stance against Riyadh “for political or other reasons” but indicated he would only accept suggested punishments “if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America,” a sign he will not approve severe punishments on the kingdom.

Trump’s announcement came in a 638-word statement issued by the White House press office. It contained eight exclamation points and began with the phrases “America First!” and “the world is a very dangerous place!”

He also repeated the Saudi government’s claim that Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and “a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.” But the president said his decision to stand by Saudi Arabia was “in no way based on that” and said he believed “this is an unacceptable and horrible crime.”

The US relationship with Saudi Arabia has long been a complicated one, due to the Middle Eastern nation’s stranglehold on the world oil industry and their consistently abhorrent record of human rights abuses.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
